Cardboard, Radio Transmitters and Good Intentions

You know how homeless people don't have homes and addresses and stuff, right. Thankfully, some innovative types have come up with an interesting short term fix for the problems that one has when your home is on your back. ShellHouse creates a simple cardboard structure, that's somewhat transportable and sturdy, and features a radio transmitter device that can be used for tracking purposes, giving the homeless person an "address" of sorts that lets them keep contact with the rest of society and well, we're not sure. But it sounds like a sort of good idea. If you're so inclined to do something this weekend for the good of humanity, the ShellHouse web site presents a step-by-step process for creating a ShellHouse, finishing with Step 9: "Give the shelter to homeless person." Retail Price: $35.00.
